I've had exactly the same "bad luck" with my new OW +...
Had to send it back to Future Motion.
It's still by them for repair...
The batteries appeared full and no problem could be red through the App.
I suppose it might be a electronic card problem or something else between the battery unit and the engine as it seemed fully charged...rolled for a few meters, then the alarm rang saying : "Empty battery" and the board stopped immediately.
Good luck ;-)
From that youtube description on the official channel;
"The Onewheel Adventure series is all about getting outdoors, finding awesome terrain and shredding like it's 2015. Get out there, ride in places you've never thought possible and get after it!"
Poor marketing message, risking liable if you're not going to cover water damage yet promote it like this as an electronic skim board.
@Wrex Yeah, I used Affirm too for the Plus. If you go on Future Motions page you'll notice that Affirm isn't an option to check out with. From what FM told me it is just temporary and that they'll be adding it back to the site asap.
It seems we may have a few first-time early adopters who are not be used to the drama that is the bleeding edge of tech. It is frustrating to say the last as I love instant gratification as much as anyone. However, as I've mentioned in another thread, graded against the other kickstarters and startups from which I have received products, FM is far and away the best. There are lots of areas in which they can improve, but IMHO many of you are starting with unrealistic expectations. A small 12-person company using many bespoke components from various suppliers is going to have supply chain issues. Anyone buying into the OW family and expecting Amazon-like turnaround times and pinpoint shipment estimates (which I do LOVE) is either uninformed or naive IMHO. It is your prerogative to complain and predict their imminent downfall. I just disagree with your premise and your predictions.
